For many, maca tablets are a much better option than maca powder. Reason for this choice is simple. Maca tablets can be easily consumed without any hassle, at any time of the day and they are also rather convenient to carry.
Maca tablets can be found on the market in combination with other ingredients or with just pure maca. How much maca tablets you should take will depend on few things:
What is your tolerance to maca compounds?
Are tablets containing only raw maca or do they also contain other ingredients?
What are your needs?
Some people do not tolerate maca starch. For that reason, it is always good to find out the origin of maca tablets or capsules you purchased and the way maca is treated. Good to know if maca is gelatinized (good option for those who do not tolerate starch), slow dried, irradiated and so on. That way you can easily estimate how your body is going to react to the maca product you just bought and whether or not you should use the product in future and in what amount.
Being packed with vitamins, minerals, amino acids and so on, concentrated maca tablets should not be consumed in large amounts. The reaction may be opposite from the positive and you may experience “hyperactive” hormonal symptoms and make them even worse. Maca is also a well-known energy booster so if consumed in large amounts your heart may speed up beating faster all the time and you will not be able to sleep at night. While some will need Maca just to improve their energy levels others will need to improve many other health issues. That is why the amount of maca tablets you take will depend on your individual needs.
